When football fans line up fantasy football lineups and pull out the jerseys of their favorite players, it means one thing. That’s it, the NFL season has arrived.
As the hunt for Glendale, Arizona and Super Bowl 57 begins, fans head to the stadium or turn on their TVs in hopes of the team lifting Lombardi’s trophy on February 23, 2023 . Even if some teams have little chance of winning the title, the love and loyalty that their dedicated fan base has for them remains the same.
But some fanbases are larger than others, and when it comes to the most popular team in the country, nothing beats the “American team,” the Dallas Cowboys, at least when it comes to internet searches. The Dallas Cowboys have the most searches for him with 6,283,060, but most of these searches are from the United States. Not only were they the most popular team in the nation, they were also the most wanted team in most states, with the Cowboys being the favorite result in seven states. With 5,274,360 searches in the US for terms related to the Dallas Cowboys, they are by far the most popular team in the US.
The team’s defense that year was exceptional, cementing the title as one of the best teams in the league.Micah Parsons (prospective Defensive Player of the Year) and Trevon Diggs’ incredible performances. Several teams dominated the region, including the Patriots conquering all six New England states and the Seahawks conquering the Pacific Northwest. New York, the fourth largest state, has three of his NFL teams: the New York Jets, New York Giants, and Buffalo Bills.
Surprisingly, New York’s favorite team isn’t one whose name begins with the name of the state. Buffalo Bills has been searched 2,070,380 times nationwide and 975,610 times in New York alone. The Bills have improved significantly in recent years, especially since Joshua Allen (QB) led the team to his AFC Championship since his last Super Bowl appearance in 1994.
In the 2021 season they have a 108 points difference in their first five games. So if you keep going, you can maintain your status as a New York favorite.
The Miami Dolphins are a sensation in Florida
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are last year’s Super Bowl champions. And may have been searched more than a million times in total in the last 12 months, but they’re not the most popular NFL team at home.
And because the Buccaneers weren’t the number one pick in any U.S. state, even a Super Bowl victory didn’t add to their popularity domestically, instead giving his three teams in Florida, the Tampa Bay Bucks Of the Caniers, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Miami Dolphins, the Dolphins have the upper hand. This team has been searched for 947,220 times in Florida, making him statistically the most popular team in the state.
In a state that’s home to multiple NFL teams, only one can come out on top. Interestingly, he has three teams in California. The San Francisco 49ers, the LA Rams, and the LA Chargers, but his favorite team is from Texas. The Dallas Cowboys are the most popular team in the state, with 416,830 searches for him in the last 12 months in California. The LA Rams and LA Chargers don’t seem to have much luck in terms of popularity, with fewer combined searches nationally than the Cincinnati Bengals. Maybe next season they can turn that around.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while not number one in their home country, are the most searched NFL team in more than half of the countries analyzed (51 countries total), including Sweden, the Philippines and Australia. However, it does not have the highest number of searches overall. In fact, they are beaten by five other teams in the search results.
. With that in mind, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers can be named “Team Earth.” Their global popularity shows that when it comes to NFL teams, the Super Bowl, and Tom Brady in particular, play a big role in global search numbers.
